Sewing machines are a classic tool, similar to those we've seen in movies throughout the years. But did you know that sewing machines have been used since 1700? Back then, they were made from animal bladders, but dedicated machine sewing shops emerged in the mid-1800s and today, sewing machines are as high tech as they are timeless.

Sewing machines come in various types, including domestic, industrial, serger and overlock. A domestic sewing machine is one of the most common types, perfect for beginners looking to learn basic stitches. This type of machine has a built-in needle, looper and bobbin, and is operated using a hand crank.

For industrial sewing machines, the bobbin is replaced by a spool, and sewing is done with a foot pedal. Industrial sewing machines are more durable than domestic sewing machines, and are often used in factories for production.

A serger is a sewing machine used primarily for sewing knit fabrics, and sews the seam in one pass, saving time and minimizing stress on seams. Overlock sewing machines use an overlock stitch, but can also be used for other types of sewing.
